    I just saw a new product from Cold Steel that seems interesting. Polymer broadhead arrow heads. They are inexpensive, available in 100 & 125 grain weights. $9.99 for 10 or $31.99 for 50, yes 50. The only down side seems to be the awful name "Cheap Shots Broadhead".

    What do you think? I might get some just to mess with.

    Hint - if you ever buy from Cold Steel, go through the owners site instead. Everything is usually less expensive on his site "Lynn Thompson's Special Projects - A Division of Cold Steel"

    Im gonna get the 50 pack just for flinging at coyotes. I hate losing an $8 broadhead every time I shoot at a yote.

    Love the idea but im torn here. Losing/breaking arrows is still a real pain, regardless of the point expense on them. So I still wouldn't take crap shots at tree climbers or in brush/grass. But it seems to be a big step in the right direction.

    Story might be better for compound shooters that can get away with cheap arrow selection and no tuning.

    I just ordered some. Shipping was as much as the cost of the product but at $2.00 a BH these could still be an awesome deal.
    I look forward to giving them a try.

    Unless I missed something the only part of this I did not like was having to open an account in order to buy something. IMO there should be an option for a one time purchase.

    They are popping up on Amazon, eBay, and other places. Some of the archery places seem to be buying the 50 packs and breaking them up into traditional 6 packs, and charging way too much. Be careful where you buy them. It search use the search " Cheap Shot Broadhead", that seems to bring up the most results.

    i reckon that big 125 might plane a bit; it'll need some good-sized fletching steerage ...

    I would be concerned about a humane kill.

    it penetrates the wood the same as the metal broad head (at least if the testing was legit) should have np taking down a deer in the same fashion as a metal broad head.

    If it will penetrate the skin of the game, then it should do it's job as well as anything else.

    Soon as they come out with one that weighs 300 grains, to match all my other points, I'll think about it.

    Not holding my breath...

    My buddy helped CS design these and the intent for them wasn't hunting big game but more for turkeys, predators and the like. He said its sharp enough that he cut his finger on them but he wouldn't use them for big game.

    Well, they have arrived.
    This is the way they arrived, courtesy of FedEx.

    They are long.
    I don't have my scale cause I'm in the process of moving. When I'm settled I'll weigh and shoot them and report.

    I will say they have a sharp edge but are most definitely a one or two shot BH.

    interested to see how they work out, especially out of a less powerful bow. they used a 70lb bow to put it through the ply wood.

    They remind me a little of the Magnus Stinger Buzzcut. I tried them once out of my hoyt but couldnt get them to shoot as well as others. There was a lot of hype on the Buzzcuts when they first came out but I have not herd anything on them in years.

    This! ^

    As long as it is sharp on the tip and has some blades down the sides it will stop things from living just the same, no matter the slight differences in designs.

    Those are SWEET looking though and the price is right. Really like how it resembles a knapped arrowhead.
